Another Blog Crush

Sometimes when you stumble on a new blog you just know right away it's a keeper. The writing is fresh, the recipes are wonderful, and the pictures make you wish you were there to share. Under The High Chair is such a blog. Aimée, the author of the blog, is a fabulous baker with amazing stories to tell, a dedicated mommy with darling boys, and a talented photographer with beautiful pictures that inspire me.

Imagine my surprise and pleasure, then, to hear from Aimée that I had won a gorgeous, handmade apron, embroidered with Under The High Chair on the pocket! Wow!

To celebrate, I had to put on the apron and bake up a batch of Aimée's family recipe bagels. It's an easy recipe and my family was delighted with the results. Fresh out of the oven they were a bit on the crunchy side (I was too eager to wait), but after they'd cooled, they transformed absolutely perfect bagels. Dense, chewy, bready, and utterly delicious!



Thanks, Aimée, for the apron and all the great recipes, stories, and pictures on your blog.

Check out Aimée's blog, try the bagels, and see for yourself how great they are.

Lynn, I love, love, LOVE that photo of you in the apron holding the bagels. The colors are stunning, vintage maybe, or retro. The cover photo of your cookbook perhaps?
